Martin St. Louis NHL about Super-Glide synthetic ice
Canadian hockey coach and former professional ice hockey player. He is the current head coach of the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL)
"Synthetic Ice has been around for awhile and quite big in the United States. And since in Canada, everyone talks about the lack of ice hockey rinks, I wanted to try to find a way to resolve the problem, so I did my research and between the four companies that produce synthetic ice, Super-Glide was the best. I have tested the product, skated on it and with all honesty I can say Super-Glide is the closest thing to real ice. On top of that, they have sold over 500 rinks around the world and are very successful. Their full size rinks are having huge success." (2011).

The similarities between real ice and this product have improved my abilities to focus on the details of skill development without the learning curve transition from dry land training to ice.
